Hi,

Thanks for this question. Well lumps which are felt under the skin are likely to be due to small lipomas which are small tumors in the fat or subcutaneous tissue. these are BENIGN tumors and usually nothing needs to be done if they are not causing any problems like pain or are causing a cosmetic issue. if they are then they can be removed surgically very easily. if they are very small in size they can disappear on changing posture. this isnt something which you need to be worried about, if they grow in size then go see your doctor but otherwise you can relax.
